The Spring 2020 semester took a historical shift in the way colleges and universities across the country serve students with disabilities in online learning environments. Making instruction accessible to deaf students was no easy task. Join us for a panel of experienced professionals who will share lessons learned when addressing challenges during the pandemic and preparing for the Fall 2020 semester (and beyond).

NDC is providing an opportunity for disability services professionals to attend TWO live online panels. The live panels will be recorded for internal evaluation purposes only. Recordings will not be made available to the public.
